Music soothes our souls. It’s hard to find a person who doesn’t like music. To commemorate and celebrate music and famous bands and songs, Australia has issued stamps. From the hard rock to the pure pop, ten hit songs of Rock Australia! All songs featured on these commemorative stamps from 2011 were great hits that found their way into the hearts of the music-lovers and philatelists too!
